Inside Out, Outside In

Rating: 4.5
The strange thing about meeting
a poet on the internet,
is that you meet them inside out.
You see what’s within
through the poems that they write.
And we have no idea of the body
that keeps the mind and heart
that’s imparting all the poems with such art.

And now as I walk down the street
and looking in the eyes of those I meet,
Its not the outside skin
that’s reaching to the heart I’m in.
In each and everyone,
its a poet lying deep within.

Truly amazing poem.. A poet conveys most insights in form of a poem.. A poet is an open book....the last stanza is reality that a poet makes his/her way to the heart of his/her readers... Thanks for sharing

How true this is...don't you find that you're looking in people's eyes to find their soul? Nicely written David! Hugs, Dee

I agree with the sentiment here. However, poetic licence can often be stretched to incredible lengths. Is what we see really what we get?
